The Most Promising Global Awards and Prizes that can help enhance the Credibility of your NGO in 2019

Every year several international organizations announce their calls for applications for awards and prizes that recognize not only prominent international NGOs but also the small grassroots NGOs.

Many times most of the NGOs fail to understand the relevance of an award as it helps to improve your standing in the philanthropic arena. Winning an award enhances the credibility of your NGO as it is an opportunity to showcase your actual hard work to the large international audience.

Participating in awards not only enhances the credibility but also gives the platform for NGOs to establish and nurture networking opportunities. Most of the awards also offer grants that can be used to fulfil their requirements.

Awards and prizes are a great source of inspiration for social change and participating in them can open up newer possibilities.

Below is a list of open awards and prizes for you to apply!
